Listen to the original song in Tamil:
என்னையெனக் கறிவித்தா னெங்கள்குரு நாதன்
இணையடியென் தலைவைத்தா னெங்கள்குரு நாதன்
அன்னைபிதாக் குருவானா னெங்கள்குரு நாதன்
அவனியெல்லா மாளவைத்தா னெங்கள்குரு நாதன்
முன்னைவினை நீக்கிவிட்டா னெங்கள்குரு நாதன்
மூவருக்கு மறியவொண்ணா னெங்கள்குரு நாதன்
நன்மைதீமை யறியாதா னெங்கள்குரு நாதன்
நான்தானாய் விளங்குகின்றா னெங்கள்குரு நாதன்
He Made Me to Know Myself
about me – to me – he introduced (1) – our – gurunathan
both feet on my – head – he placed – our – gurunathan
mother – father – guru, he became – our – gurunathan
world – entire – rule – made (me) – our – gurunathan
previous – action/reaction – remove – he did – our – gurunathan
by all three (2) – to know – he who is, not possible – our – gurunathan
good – bad – he who does not discriminate – our – gurunathan
as Self – He shines – our – gurunathan
Il m’a mystiquement annoncé sa présence, notre Gurunathan
Il a posé ses deux pieds sur ma tête, notre Gurunathan
Il est devenu ma mère, mon père et mon guru, notre Gurunathan
Il m’a fait régner sur le monde entier, notre Gurunathan
Il a anéanti les actions et les réactions de mon passé, notre Gurunathan
Il n’est pas possible de le connaître à travers la Trinité hindoue, notre Gurunathan
Il est celui qui ne fait pas de distinction entre le bien et le mal, notre Gurunathan
Il brille comme le Soi, notre Gurunathan
Aum Namah Sivaya
Today we'd like to announce the release of our latest Web App, which works to fulfill one of Gurudeva's long-standing ideas. As Stated in the Nanadinatha Sutras:
"SŪTRA 287: OUR ŚAIVITE HINDU BIBLE
All my devotees revere as scripture The Holy Bible of the Śaivite Hindu Religion—which includes excerpts from the Vedas, the Āgamas, Tirumantiram, Tirumurai and Tirukural—and guide their lives by its wisdom. Aum"
So click here to view the Saivite Hindu Bible. This online anthology of Hindu Scripture includes english translations of some of our most important and profound texts, with more to come! It includes excerpts from the Vedic Hyms, the Upanishads, the Kamika, Raurava, Sarvajnanottara and Mrugendra Agamas, the Sri Nandikesa Kasika, Patanjali's Yoga Sutras, the Tirumurai and more. Dive in and start discovering what your scriptures are really about. Aum.
Guru's Wisdom is a prized collection of Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami's Publisher's Desk editorials, which he's written over the years for Hinduism Today magazine. Over time satguru has recorded these writings in his own voice for videos and in plain audio. We've compiled those files here to create this audiobook which can now be enjoyed. Click on the light grey icon on the lower right on the book to show a table on contents. Go here to bookmark it on the web for future listening.
Our full-color third edition of Gurudeva's wildly popular book, Loving Ganesha: Hinduism's Endearing Elephant-Faced God has arrived in the US from our printer in Malaysia (it took a while, but then Ganesha is known to be a bit ponderous) and is available online here: bit.ly/LGcolor.
For those new to the work, here is some detail and reviews:
Lord Ganesha is revered around the world as the ancient God of success/art/science/culture/society. This beloved elephant-faced Lord of Obstacles is part of Indian, Sri Lankan, Malaysian, Nepalese, Japanese, Vietnamese and Chinese religious culture, probably the most pan-Asian of all Deities. And He is the most popular Hindu Deity in the US.
Loving Ganesha unfolds a rich, readable potpourri that will immediately transport you into the psychic reality of this cosmic soul being. Children's prayers, mantras, pujas, symbols, metaphysics, soul qualities, Aum science, Lord of karma, recipes and more is presented in the most complete digest of Lord Ganesha ever produced. Fully illustrated. Hard cover, color, illustrated, 484 pages, 7.125" x 10.25".
"A treasure-trove of information on Ganesha and Hinduism"
"Whether viewed as instructional or as an affectionate tribute, Loving Ganesha is the comprehensive source for those who seek knowledge, not just information, of this greatest of Hindu Deities" --NAPRA Review
